The money comes out of the same place, so it doesn't really matter. If you run it as debit you type in your pin so you don't have to show ID or sign a slip. And, so you know, you can request your pin from your bank.

It doesn't matter, but it usually takes the funds a little longer to come outta your account.

The primary difference between debit and credit is in the way that the transactions are processed. When you run your bank card as a debit card, you will be asked to enter a personal identity number (PIN), and the funds are removed from your account instantly. When you select a credit option, the transaction is verified with your signature, and the funds may not be removed from your account right away, depending on how the store processes its credit card transactions. Many do what is known as “batching,” meaning that all of the credit transactions are run in a batch, typically at the end of the day, and it may take several days for your credit transaction to clear.

There are some businesses (Walgreens and Family Dollar, for example) that will force you to use a PIN with your debit card. Reason? PIN-based transaction costs are lower than signature-based transactions. So, yeah, you'll have to clear up the forgotten PIN issue eventually. Incidentally, the "instant" method for distinguishing between a credit card and a debit card: A debit card has the hologram on the front while a credit card has the hologram on the back.
